Cultural Exchange Goes Virtual for International Game Prototyping Course
RIT students collaborate to create games with students around the globe, from Japan to Senegal
International travel may be limited, but it hasn’t stopped RIT game developers from collaborating with students across the world to create new game prototypes.
As part of a gameplay and prototyping class at RIT this spring, 25 game design and development students got to participate in a virtual cultural exchange with 30 students at the Japanese college Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG). The student teams learned about each other’s cultures and overcame language barriers and time zone differences to create projects for a global game jam.
